Hertfordshire County

Hertfordshire is a County in Southern England which borders Greater London to the South, Essex to the East and Buckinghamshire to the West. Between the pockets of undeveloped agricultural land, are cities and towns filled with semi-detached and terraced style dwellings.

The borough consists of Broxbourne, Watford, Hertsmere boroughs and St Albans and Dacorum districts.

The Local authority is Hertfordshire County Council, and are mainly based in the county hall in Hetford.

Both Broxbourne and East Hertfordshire areas are mostly made up of semi-detached dwellings. Most semi-detached properties are the typical 1930s three bedroom types (one of which being the infamous box room style) and are ideal for roof space expansion. Loft conversion designs often involve steel beams going into a Party Wall. Cutting into the Party Wall for the purpose of installing a steel beam is a notifiable work under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. Building Owners of semi-detached properties proposing a loft conversion are legally obliged to inform their Adjoining Owners of the alterations they wish to make to a Party Wall. We understand that the Party Wall Process is one of many components of the bigger project. Party Wall London are here to alleviate hassle for Building Owners by offering a service of serving valid Party Wall Notices to Adjoining Owners on their behalf.

Extending the ground floor to the rear is a popular renovation project to open up communal living spaces for terraced properties.

Party Wall London will look over proposed drawings for excavation works and advice Building Owners of the necessary steps that are required to execute their project successfully.
